Short wedding dresses, even now, seem unconventional. However, if you're having a summer wedding or live in perpetually hot climate, you might want to opt for a cooler option. Sort dresses are funky, fresh and sexy. Here are some of my personal favorites….
A vintage dress spans all the way from the 1920s flapper era of the chemise and cap veil to the disco flair of the 70s and everything in between. Vintage wedding gowns showcase decades of fashion history, and women are guaranteed to find a flattering style that matches their wedding day vision. For example, if you love the antiquity of French and Belgian lace, then a 50s post-war inspired vintage lace wedding dress would appeal to you more than the minimalist pieces of the 40s.

Speaking of photography...should we feed the wedding vendors?
Yes! You should plan to feed any wedding professional who will be there with you at the reception. This includes your photographer, videographer, DJ and band. The best way to broach the topic with your pros is to put it in the contract. Unless your vendor prefers otherwise, plan to give them a meal off the same menu as your guests. Once that's settled, you are responsible for letting your caterer know how many extra meals they need to prepare for your vendors. Read more
Personally, I think cake design choice is dependent of your wedding's theme. As excited as you might be to choose you cake and it's style, hold off until you have a clearer idea of what you want your wedding to feel and look like overall.
